“MY STORY” – Laquell Harris

– Laquell Harris 

I am beyond ecstatic to be a part of this PanAmerican U20 Athletics Championships Team.  I feel as though the staff has put together a great team, capable of going to Peru and representing the Bahamas well and I get to be a part of the experience.

It's been a long season where the last few meets I was dealing with a minor ankle injury.  I wasn't really throwing what I wanted to, but I and my support team have been working to help deal with it.  I have been doing a lot of rehabilitation that includes extra stretches, pulse treatment, and ice. Lots and lots of ice. I have actually come a long way in the past few weeks.  I feel as though I am more prepared now than I was a few weeks ago.

I qualified for the meet at the CARIFTA Games in April.  After competing in the big meets like CARIFTA and Nationals, I believe that it has best prepared me by exposure and experience. There will be a lot of big countries and competitors out there and I don't have to get nervous or anxious because I already know what I should expect from myself under similar conditions. 

Every athlete wants to go there and medal, it's a part of our nature and we wish to make Our Country proud.  So yes, I hope I can bring home a medal but moreover, I pray for a good personal best.  I wish the same for all my teammates, that we can all come home and be proud of our performances.
